Contemporary Bearsden villa waved through by planners
February 7 2018two-storey detached house and driveway in Bearsden won consent from planners at East Dunbartonshire Council.
A disused tennis court at 14 Ellergreen Road has been taken on by a self-build client to create a contemporary four-bedroom home of ‘deconstructed brick’.
Finished in grey and black brick the home has been conceived as a garden pavilion or courtyard house set within an established residential setting in a conservation area.
The architects wrote: “The house has been conceived as a deconstructed brick enclosure that grounds the building to its long, narrow site. The brick enclosure has been opened up to insert a timber and glass pavilion and verandah that sits inside to create a series of sheltered courtyards and garden spaces that admits light into the internal spaces, filtering the view of nature and allowing the dweller to indulge in the passage of time and the changing of the seasons by inviting nature into the building.
“The courtyards capture nature within the embrace of the house, ‘rooms’ of green that are simultaneously indoors and outdoors.”
A condition of planning stipulates retention of protected Scots Pine trees on-site.
